Handling shimmers and twinkles in DMX environment

Well, this year we are changing our transmission protocol from LOR to DMX.

Previously we have had over 550,channels running on our LOR network. New this year we will run two DMX universes to handle our 550 lor channels as well as running 50 E.131 universes for our 48X150 pixel tree and tree topper.

We have over 110,000 full wave LED's and they really go wild when they are shimmering and twinkling.

Any quick & easy way to do shimmers and twinkles when using DMX??

Thanks --Greg--

I have found that LOR hardware simply does a better shimmer than using DMX with LOR software. (Some DMX devices, such as the Rainbow Flood Extreme have extra DMX channels to handle strobe/shimmer effects.)

 

The nice thing about the LOR software is that it can drive both LOR and DMX networks at the same time. So the question is: Why not keep using LOR with your LOR boxes and also use DMX for your pixel devices?

The answer to your question is two fold. I have over 512 LOR channels so I need two DMX universes to run all my LOR devices. 2nd, I plan to have Nutcracker/Xlights to run my show which will have an additional 22,000 pixel channels. LOR simply cannot do that.

 

I need to have xlights run everything in DMX mode. --Greg--
